A highly versatile multi-disciplinary designer / director with an emphasis on user-centered design.
My aim as a designer is to help others address complex challenges by applying curiosity, critical thinking, rigor, craft, and to lead teams in translating research from insights to actionable design that drives change and creates new opportunities.
The approach of living the problem, along with rigorous exploration, have been highly influential to me, and I believe both are critical to breaking new ground.

I have over 17 years of design experience across a broad range of projects, clients, and industries.
My range of work and experience all stem from my ongoing curiosity.
I’m equally passionate about process and execution, and I’m always motivated by the pursuit of new problems, and bringing together the right tools, technology, or people to design new realities. I pursue design with a wholistic perspective, and enjoy tackling all aspects of design in creating compelling solutions and experiences in any medium.
No ego. No drama. Just a motivation to do great work with great people.
